Police Arrest Goat In Need Of A Caffeine Fix

Everyone loves a great latte, but one Starbucks café had to deal with the unlikeliest of customers.

Apparently, humans aren’t the only ones who enjoy having Starbucks.

Workers at Starbucks in Rohnert Park, California, were in for a surprise when an unexpected, four-legged customer wandered into a shop on Sunday.

Rohnert Park police Sgt. Rick Bates said the department responded to several calls about a goat found roaming about a shopping plaza. The animal then strolled inside a Starbucks coffee shop situated in the plaza, where the employees tried to lure it out with a banana — but their efforts died in vain as the herbivore, in classic goat fashion, ignored the fruit and started chewing on a box.

The public safety department was able to take the animal into custody but not before they snapped a couple of photos and posted it on their Facebook page.

According to an employee, the owners of the goat, who lived just two buildings down the plaza, soon arrived at the animal shelter to bring it back home.

The goat, named Millie, appears to be unharmed and her owner Alan Ergenbright, 12, claims she escaped by wriggling out of her leash and walking out of her pen.

“When we heard, we thought she was a little crazy. She’s a really happy and sweet goat. She’s also pretty curious,” Ergenbright said. “We’re going to build a fence today so she doesn’t get away again, and so she can walk around freely.” 

This isn’t the only case of animals gone wacky.

Goliath the cow thinks she is a puppy — a Great Dane, to be precise — and loves to relax in a doggy crib and watch TV, while Kijito, the silverback gorilla was so desperate to have his selfie taken, he smashed into a window.
